About Other Voices Cardigan at Aberteifi | Cardigan

On 1st and 2nd November Other Voices makes its way from Dingle on the west coast of Ireland to Cardigan on the west coast of Wales, for a phenomenal weekend of music which celebrates the
longstanding cultural and musical ties between these Celtic regions. Over the two-day event Other Voices Cardigan will showcase an incredible line-up of over 30 free musical and cultural events in intimate venues and atmospheric spaces throughout Cardigan, hosted by Huw Stephens and presented in partnership with Theatr Mwldan and Triongl.

A celebration of music in all its forms, Other Voices began as an intimate gathering in 2001, with musicians travelling to sing in a tiny church in Dingle, on the very western edge of Ireland. The incredible list of artists, who have appeared at past Other Voices events, includes John Grant, The National, The XX, Hozier, Elbow, Florence and The Machine, Super Furry Animals, Amy Winehouse, Snow Patrol, Laura Marling, Cerys Matthews and Ellie Goulding. Every year thousands of music fans make the pilgrimage to Dingle to see exceptional music performed in an extraordinary place.
To date over 30 million viewers have watched Other Voices online worldwide, and it has travelled from its home base in West Kerry (Ireland), to Austin (Texas), London, Belfast and Berlin, Derry and New York, enriching the cultural landscape of every destination it visits, celebrating a diverse array of live music as well as providing a platform for open, compelling dialogues about art, culture, technology and commerce and exploring the ways in which they intersect.

St Mary’s Church will become the main venue for Other Voices Cardigan, hosting the headline acts. These performances will be simultaneously broadcast live to screens in and around the town so that the local community and visitors to the town alike can share in the excitement of this exceptional experience.

In addition to St Mary’s Church there will also be a number of ‘Music Trail’ venues located around the town which will be presenting more than 30 artists.

Other Voices Cardigan is staged with the support and investment of Welsh Government and The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, and is produced by South Wind Blows in partnership with Theatr Mwldan and Triongl. The event will be filmed by Triongl for later broadcast on S4C.
